SVP Worldwide Launches TruEmbroidery(TM) Software, Complete Embroidery Software Designed for Mac(R) Computers

SVP Worldwide has announced the creation of a new embroidery software brand, TruEmbroidery(TM), dedicated to providing personal embroidery products exclusively for Mac(R) computers and compatible with most embroidery machines. The brand's first product, TruEmbroidery(TM) Software for Mac(R) computers, was unveiled as the sewing industry's premier embroidery software designed specifically for Mac(R) users. The launch of the comprehensive TruEmbroidery(TM) software system meets a growing consumer demand for Mac(R) compatible embroidery products. Apple reports that there are more than 66 million Mac(R) computer users worldwide present, a number that has tripled in just five years. Specifically across creative and design-focused industries, Mac(R) computers have long been embraced and incorporated, making TruEmbroidery(TM) software an ideal product for the personal embroidery market. The new TruEmbroidery(TM) software works exclusively with Mac(R) computers and the recently released OS X Mountain Lion operating system, which after exceeding three-million downloads within four days became Apple's most successful launch in history (Computer World, 2012). The comprehensive TruEmbroidery(TM) Software for Mac(R) computers incorporates many familiar Mac(R) elements, including gestures, simplified interfaces, user-friendly menus and drop-down boxes, and the ability to view multiple windows at once -- creating an entirely new embroidery software experience. TruEmbroidery(TM) Software for Mac(R) computers comes complete with three unique modules: TruE(TM) Studio, TruE(TM) Modify and TruE(TM) Create. Each module offers a multitude of designing, personalization and editing functionalities that bring embroidery designs to life. TruE(TM) Studio: Adjust, personalize and combine hundreds of embroidery designs, frames and flourishes. Allows access to more than 100 different fonts and countless lettering options. The TruE(TM) QuickCreate Assistant: Automatically create designs for personalized projects using 325 built-in clipart images or own imported image. Create standard embroidery with satin and fill areas. TruE(TM) Modify: Transform embroideries with the perfect touches, using morphing options. Automatically add basting stitches and trim commands, and optimize all designs for stitching out. TruE(TM) Create: Tap into unlimited embroidery design possibilities, creating designs from pictures with easy specialty effects and thousands of stitch effects including 250 fill patterns.
